The Manhattan Well Murder Trial

Argued by some of the most important people of the day, the Manhattan Well Murder Trial, America's first high-profile trial, was also the first for which we have a transcript. The accused was Levi Weeks and his defense team included notable Americans like Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
